GET PORKED at Landhaus

DO YOU WANNA GET PORKED???!!! Sweet! So do I!...Like ALL the time. PORKED IN THE MOUTH.

Unfortunately, as of lately I've been getting a little bored with all the places in Park Slope that I usually go to GET PORKED. That's why it's so perfect that two weeks ago Thursday Landhaus, Brooklyn's wandering pork purveyors, moved into the space occupied this past summer by People's Pops.

Landhaus has earned that "wandering" tag over the past few years by foregoing a physical space in favor of a booth at Smorgasburg & The Brooklyn Flea, and a menu served out of The Woods, a Williamsburg bar. Park Slope makes TOTAL sense for their first physical locale, as their slogan is "Farm to Sandwich." You Park Slopers love that locavore shit.

The tiny storefront space, however, is better suited for take-out due to the dearth of seating. Sure, you can sit at one of the few seats along the wall, or you can do like I did & eat off of the Ms. Pac Man machine, but if you show up on an eve where more than a half-dozen people are looking to GET PORKED in-house, you're pretty much taking that shit to go.

FiPS Exclusive: Crespella to open second location in South Slope

There are lots of places in this neighborhood to get coffee, but Crespella (321 7th Avenue at 9th Street) will always have a place in my heart because of their super tasty, highly-addictive, Oh-My-God-I-Want-To-Marry-You crépes. Which is why I'm extra excited to hear that Crespella is opening a second location right here in the Slope.

Is North Slope Gettin' a Shake Shack?! (Probably)

While many North Slope residents continue to protest the opening of The Barclays Center and the sidewalk traffic it’ll cause, a new threat to sidewalks everywhere may soon join our favorite rusted UFO. A site adjacent to Barclays could soon play host to a new outpost of New York’s favorite place to wait three hours for a burger: Shake Shack.

According to The Post, Danny Meyers’ burgers-and-custard joint, along with other fine establishments such as Panera Bread, TGI Fridays, and Starbucks, may soon set up shop on the borough’s most-controversial strip of real estate. We here at FiPS are pretty excited about the prospect of Shake Shack coming to our ‘hood, even if it does mean more sidewalk congestion. For one thing, we won’t have to ride three stops on the subway to get to Downtown Brooklyn for our Concretes and crinkly fries. But let’s also consider that recognizable brands like Shake Shack and Fridays might help keep our favorite local restaurants from getting overrun by drunken basketball fans.

The Salads Are Coming! The Salads Are Coming! 

 

FiPS takes credit for a lot of things: the discovery of the Higgs Boson, the existence of corgis, the release of the Mitt Romney's secret footage (and this video, too), etc. Some things we probably shouldn't -- though David Corn totally is our Coop spy. But Just Salad taking up residence in Park Slope? That one's alllllll us, yo.

We told you last week that Just Salad was coming into Seventh Avenue space for the former, much-hated Parkslope Eatery. When the place finally tanked in June (there is a god?) we cried out, Hark! Salad cometh?! and our prayers have been answerd...answeredth!
